PS3 Trophy Sync error

35 replies 3468 views Edited Nov 20, 2009
I've been getting PS3 Trophy sync errors for about 3-4 days now on both my PS3s on different accounts. I can't do the new colors for the profiles without syncing the Trophies. I see other with the new colors. I haven't seen any posts on this. Anyone else?

Just keep trying. eventually it will work. Either sync from clicking Trophies, Compare with a friend, or view your profile. usually takes me 3-5 trys. Hope they fix the servers soon.

My epic GoW3 sig got removed so you have to see my epic stats instead.

Thanks, I'll give it a few more tries before I give up.

Yeah, it seems like a lot of people are running into this. I've had it myself and 2 or 3 syncs usually take care of it. Last night it took probably 5-7, but it worked eventually.

I think I may have a solution....

I have been stuck with this problem since the update, and I tried to sync every day at all times to no avail.

Today, I went to the cross bar, and then chose a friend and hit COMPARE TROPHIES.

I watched the progress bar eek past 12%...where it normally froze, until it actually loaded all my trophies and my selected friends trophies for comparison. I backed out, and went right to my profile, hit X, and lo and behold, all my trophies synced, and I could now view my profile.  I also was able to change my profile background color-the new thing added by the recent update.

I know this may be an isolated fix, but it's worth a try for all you guys.

I have tried all these steps along with other things and nothing works. I can sync my other account no problem so I'm not sure what the deal is. It seems like it started right after the last update but I also bought Modern Warfare 2 at that time so I'm not sure if it is related. I've tried numerous times to sync my main account and it hangs at 10% with that error code. My other account is my wifes and she doesn't play MW2, it syncs very quickly, but again I am not sure if that is related to the problem yet or not.

I think it DOES have something to do with MW2. A lot of people say it has to do with Facebook, but I disagree.

I suggested the fix I did to some others, and they advise it cleared up the issue. Either way, it needs to be addressed by Sony, so hopefully they get their act together soon.

I sent Sony an e-mail about this and was told it's affecting 'a very small number of users' and may be addressed by scheduled maintenance due dec 10 --- as far as I've seen it's affecting a fairly large number of users so people having this issue need to contact sony support so they realise it's a big problem - the answer told me basically that it's just trophies and not important enough to worry about since it doesn't affect gameplay , and didn't even acknowledge the part about not being able to use the color change option without trophy synch -- we need to all let sony know how widespread the issue is
